Title says it all. I have a budget of 650$ (need's to also include a monitor) i would like to have a 1080 resolution. I won't be gaming on it but i'll still like to be able to launch games like fortnite and play at a decent frame rate. I also want this pc to be able to run many applications at the same time like: Phpstorm, Discord, Spotify, IE etc... Thanks :d

Hey !

You can have a R5 2400G based system with 16GB of RAM and 500GB SSD, with a 1080p 22" FreeSync monitor, but Windows isn't included to keep the price under the 660 mark

The case choice is absolutely subjective, buy whatever case you want if you don't like the NZXT, as long as it support MicroATX motherboard :)

That should be future-proof, you can add a dedicated GPU later if you plan later on gaming or GPU intensive task, but the integrated RX Vega graphics should be more than enough for your use :)

1. you'll never utilize that 16gb with the 2400g in gaming

2. combo of 120gb ssd and 1tb hdd would be much better value

3. spending too much on case

4. spending too much on psu

Yeah maybe in gaming, but he didn't talked about gaming being his main priority, he said "I won't be gaming on it... I also want this pc to be able to run many applications at the same time", so for me the 16GB of RAM is legitimate.

I agree for the SSD/HDD combo, he is free to change it, it's just a proposition.

Same as before, he is free to change it, it's just a proposition.

I wanted to put a bigger PSU so he have the possibility to add a GPU later if he wanted to, but again, as said before, he is free to change it.

I sometimes go with more than 30 chrome tabs and discord and steam and mail and a stupid amount of LINE (asian whatsapp) tabs in the background and never went over my 8GB on my old rig.

a bad proposition that will likely cost him in the long term...

Unless he suddenly upgrade to a 8700K and 2x 1080 Ti he'll be fine with 450W or 550W. Even a single 1080 w/ 8700K will run on 450W.

Honestly with only using Safari and Spotify, I sometimes use all of my 8GB, it's just to be future-proof as said, and it's under his budget.

But I hope he will take your advice in account then, no one has the infused science, but the rest of the config is still valid.

Here is one in a SFF

 

But you won't be able to upgrade the RAM in the future.
